Angels Among Us - Saved By A Refridgerator

During the last two weeks, our church has had a team of volunteers working in Joplin, Missouri. As you may recall, Joplin was devastated by tornados earlier this summer. The volunteers returned home yesterday and spent a few minutes talking about their trip. Pastor Brian, who led the team, shared one story with us that I wanted to pass on.
Shortly after the tornados hit, a man was driving along and came across a refridgerator in the road. The man felt moved to stop and look in the refridgerator, and when he did he found a small boy inside.
Imagine if you will a child inside a refridgerator being picked up by a tornado and thrown heaven-only-knows how far. Imagine the grisly sight that could have met that man who stopped. Instead, the boy was perfectly well and unharmed. The man asked the boy why he got into the refridgerator, and the boy replied, “A man with wings put me in there.”
I wonder how many adults would have had the courage to say that. Only a child could have stated such a powerful truth so unabashedly.
Every year, every month, every day our nation falls further away from God’s good graces as more and more of us turn our backs on Him. Will God’s angels be on your side when His retribution finally comes?

Psalms 4:8 "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. ESV

Psalms 9:19-20 "Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before you! Put them in fear, O Lord! Let the nations know that they are but men! ESV

Psalms 91:4 "He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. ESV
